Nicely done. I wish I had gone this route instead of AFX hose kit. Although a nice OE look, the hose kit is in the way as far as accessing spark plugs and header bolts.

The plastic checkvalve looking things in the original hoses are just connectors.

I wonder why GM did that
Folks need to be sure to get it the rite way.Use the correct diameter hose at the firewall and spread the 5/8 hose over the 3/4 nipple at the water pump.Less chance damaging the heater core that way.

I wonder how many people have going to the same size nipple both ways and if it would make a difference?The water control valve could be impacted with the flow of water going the wrong direction?
So the 3/4 hose looks like it works best on the firewall, is it 5/8 on the other end that hooks to the water pump or do you really squeeze it? Picture almost loks 5/8. Then the 5/8 on the firewall has to be stretched over the 3/4 on the pump? that's where the WD comes in? Looking to order hoses and do this next weekend.

thanks in advance

Use 3/4" hose on everything.
Sounds wierd but works perfectly.

You will see what I mean when you install them.

Actually from what I remember it's both 5/8 and 3/4 on both hoses. In other words looking at connection points on the firewall the one that's 5/8 will go to the one that's 3/4 on the waterpump. Same in reverse on the other side.

If you order the hoses listed in the first thread they'll install perfectly (with a little length trimmed off one hose).

That could be very true.
I did not use the pre-formed hoses,just standard 3/4" heater hose from Napa.
The larger fitting on the water pump is actually bigger than 3/4" thus requiering a slight bulge to fit over.
The larger fitting at the fire wall fit the 3/4" hose perfectly.
The smaller fitting at the firewall fit just ever so slightly loose with the 3/4"
The smaller fitting at the water pump was easy loose.
I used worm clamps everywhere.

Kinda wierd if you ask me

Yes it is weird and your method of using 3/4" hose will work as well. I've heard of some people doing it with only the 3/4" as well. One side being pretty tight to go on and the other loose but with a tightened down clamp.

The ones I got off Amazon that are listed in the initial post already come with the slight buldge where need though. Makes it easy to deal with.

Correction from this post.
I was going to use standard 5/8" hose on the firewall side but later decided against it.
It was going to take way to much force to get it on there and there was no way it was going to fit over the larger water pump fitting.

Again,the pre-formed hose may not be an issue.

What are you confused about? Hopefully we can clear it up for you.

Get the hoses off of Amazon and you'll be good. Hardest part is getting the hoses off the firewall because they are stuck on there pretty good and there's not alot of room to get your hand up in there.

I got my hoses from Napa. They were cross referenced from the Autozone part numbers through the Dayco website. In fast, they are Dayco hoses. They are 5/8" hoses with a 3/4" flare on one end, the ends being opposite for each hose. They needed slight trimming to make them the same length just like others stated. They worked out great and fit perfectly.

This is going to sound like I'm being a smart ass but I'm not....I apologize in advance if it sounds like it.

Everything you need is in the first post. Take a few min to read through it all.

I apologize...I did read through every post on this thread so far.

All I saw was the hose size and I didn't notice the part numbers that you included. Thanks for the correction. I just ordered them and I hope to get those ugly hoses off my intake this weekend.

This was the first thing I did after my ProCharger installation. The engine cover could not be used as it was too tight, and besides my personal opinion is the engine looks nicer than the piece of plastic covering it up.

This is the Tech AFX mentioned earlier in the thread, everybody sells them.
Had them installed now for about 1wk. no issues at all, and noticed engine and oil temps are lower on my centre guages.
I'd say a good buy, and clean if you want something extra than just replacing the rubber hoses.

Yep....same concept.

Obviously more money though because you're getting hard lines as opposed to all rubber.

If you're wanting more looks and willing to spend the money the Tech AFX is the way to go. For me I use an engine cover so the Tech AFX would be hidden.

Now...I will say that I had at least two guys that had Tech AFX say they wish they would've gone the rubber hose route because if you have to do anything with the spark plugs you have to remove the Tech AFX. I don't know how true that is or if you would even need to mess with your plugs.....just saying that's what I've been told.
